    know nothing

    and in knowing nothing

    know everything




    know everything

    and in knowing everything

    know nothing
    ~Aspire to beauty, light, peace and love, whoever you are, wherever you be.
    ~Ground yourself. Then, reach up to Perfection, and place yourself there.
    ~These are the keys to happiness. Choose them. Choose them constantly.
    ~You are worthy of Perfection and Peace. Purity comes to those who seek it.

    The inside of water

    is nothing but air



    In all air

    there is water




    A stone is dense.

    It contains no water,

    no air

    stone contains water
    in crystalline form
    minute molecules
    wedged in between
    mighty metamorphic
    carbon, iron, silicon.


    This ad goes away when you register.

    just as raindrops
    contain carbon:
    particulate but
    present.
    No power in the 'verse can stop me.

    Stop it! Stop it! Bad Girl! Love your evil twin...mabe she's not really evil just a different type of energy...and besides she has some needs that can be better met another way...I'm sure she does...find a better more fulfilling way--that doesn't involve that knife.

    Excellant poetry, though. I'm a published poet myself so I know a thing or two. Don't go pulling a Sylvia Plath. Artists do not need to suffer--the just need to feel. Increase your skills, increase your range--try writing a counterpoint to this work--something all bright and beautiful and full of joy and wonder at the world and the life around you--outside of you. Experience fully the dark and the interior stuff but also the light and shining stuff around you. I write both...balance!

    Once in the Netherworld upon a CosmochemicaL


    Slightly deranged gets Personal Gain cheaper yet a Misfits Aim
    Never ashamed upon a Kind of Plane reigned by a King's Tyrannic Fame
    The unfallen Kingdom of a mind gone to shame, blessed by death.
    To become Familiar with Test's, Unequal and yet matters are sequel.





    Abusive Absurd Totalitarian Tolerance

    a haiku:

    the whirling leaves
    the sparkeling laughing brooks
    of our dancing days

    (needs work--haikus are tough)

    The above video of a Robert Burns Poem posted by "G-D's dog"....that's what Cindie (Cin die) called me...her Dad, Master Sergeant OB Williams said that Cindie was his alter-ego... so she ought to know what she's talking about. Y'know, in the past, everytime the USA has faced a military crisis, the Joint Chiefs of Staff held an emergency meeting, and the first thing they always did was call Master Sergeant OB Williams and tell him to pack gear. (ha!) Now OB is in charge of the beach patrol in Heaven

    When the wind blows feel its caress. When the sun shines feel its caress. When the rain falls feel its caress. Then know how to caress others.

    On the backs of the clouds my soul wanders,
    I can fly as far as I want.
    A silver cord keeps me tethered,
    And when I am ready to fly forever,
    I cut the cord and go where ever.
